I purchased these binoculars for an Alaskan Cruise based on extensive research. This was my first purchase of quality binoculars and I found them easy to use, lightweight and the brightness was outstanding!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lifeguard Exceptionally sharp and bright sport optics
I used two other pairs of binoculars for a number of years but was never happy with the sharpness. I have been a long-time user of Nikon's cameras and lenses and in 2013 I bought a pair of Monarch 5 10x42s. During the shopping process I was careful to compare the brands available at the retail outlets I visited and I did not limit myself to a particular price range or manufacturer. To tell the truth, what I found in the comparison process didn't surprise me. Nikon's offering was noticeably sharper than the other brands shopped. Photographers will be familiar with the term depth of field. In comparing the various brands of binoculars I found Nikon's M5 10x42s to have superior sharpness with depth. Clearly binoculars do not use an iris to control reciprocity or depth of field and I am beyond my depth to explain why these binoculars offer greater optical depth than the others I compared, but I would certainly encourage people shopping for sport optics to examine the products they are interested in with this in mind. In any case I've been using the Monarch 5 for about a year now for birding and general adventuring and I'm very happy with them and would whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nature Mike Oh Yeah
I finally upgraded to real binoculars. I have been using what I thought were decent binoculars. They worked but the image always seemed shadowed. I have 2 pairs, different magnification, of them and they both do the same thing. I started to think my eyes were going bad until I decided to try some higher grade optics. I tried several manufacturers and compared cost versus clarity/performance and the Monach 5 12 x 42 binoculars seemed like the best investment for me. I could not be happier. It's one thing to test optics indoors an another to field test them. I tried much more expensive optics and could not notice any difference in quality compared to the Monarch 5. For the cost, these can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spotter Boy Best bang for the buck....
I've been looking to replace a cheap pair of 10 X 52mm binoculars of another brand for quite a while. I researched several brands in the 10 X 42mm size, comparing spec's and prices. Then going out to several retailers and actually looking through them all. I kept coming back to the Nikon Monarch series. My biggest choice was in comparing the Monarch, 3's, 5's, and 7's. I chose the Monarch 5 since I felt it had the best, clearest optics with great color definition, light in weight, compact in size, and ease of use.
For the price the Nikon Monarch 5 binoculars can't be beat, I use them for both hunting and bird watching, and they excel for both activities.
